The Transformation of Cities free pdf This is an examination of the transformation of the city in the late 20th century and an exploration of the ways in which city life is structured. The shift from modern industrial to information/consumption-based, postmodern cities is traced through the text. The focus is not just on America and Europe but also on cities in other parts of the world, as city growth in the 21st century will be predominantly outside of these regions.
